     Richard Greene brings to photography a unique personal history. His career as a bluegrass and classical violinist spanned non-stop from 1960 to 2013, a world-wide touring musician, recording artist and educator. Along with music as a young teenager Richard became obsessed with photography, from a bathroom/darkroom processing 2¼ x 2¼ black and white and color film to today’s digital revolution. He avidly collected books by the masters recognized at that time: Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, Edward Weston and browsed countless others in local camera shops every day after school. Then home to practice.


     Richard’s four primary musical goals have always been Expression, Innovation, Technique and Composition. In applying exactly these same intentions to his photography he finds that the creation of musical and photographic works are quite the same, both depend entirely on the artistic placement of available or sometimes imagined elements. Music and photography both start before using the instrument, both start with seeing.


     Richard is currently active in the Los Angeles Center of Photography and involved with many photographic organizations including The Palm Springs Photo Festival, American Photographic Artists-LA Chapter, American Society of Media Photographers, and Los Angeles Adobe User Group. His work has been seen in many dozens of exhibitions throughout the United States and he is the recipient of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery Award, Exhibition and Traveling Tour.
